Students in A.T.A. compete year around at tournaments for points. These points will determine the State and World Standings. State Titles are for leadership students only, colored or black belt students, and are awarded based on the point system. World Titles are competed for at World Championships in Little Rock, Arkansas each year in June. The top ten black belt students in each age and black belt rank division will compete for the Title of World Champion. You do not have to be in leadership, but you do have to be a first degree black belt or higher to compete for a World Title.
